Afterlife Weather Forecast -- the Temperature of Hell


  Here is what one correspondent tells us:
 Regarding the calculations  of the temperatures of heaven and hell using
real Bible passages as the source as presented on your website, these
were presented in the Journal of Applied Optics, a well respected,
important journal in its field. I am not positive of the actual
citation, but it may be in the August 1972 issue of said journal.

If notin the August issue, it indeed appeared it that journal during that
time period. I also do recall that in the journal they gave no source,
stating that it was merely passed from one to another to another to

... and from another correspondent:

The following is an actual question given on a University of Washington chemistry midterm. The answer by one student was so "profound" that the professor shared it with colleagues via the Internet, which is of course, why we now have the pleasure of enjoying it as well.

  Bonus Question:  Is Hell exothermic (gives off heat) or endothermic (absorbs heat)
      Most of the students wrote proofs of their beliefs using Boyle's Law, (gas  cools off when it expands and heats up when it is compressed) or some variant. 

One student, however, wrote the following: 
First, we need to know how the mass of Hell is changing in time. So we need to know the rate that souls are moving into Hell and the rate they are leaving. I think that we can safely assume that once a soul gets to Hell, it will not leave; therefore, no souls are leaving.

As for how many souls are entering Hell, let us look at the different religions that exist in the world today. Some of these religions state that if you are not a member of their religion, you will go to Hell. Since there are more than one of these religions and since people do not belong to more than one religion, we can project that all souls go to Hell. With birth and death rates as they are, we can expect the number of souls in Hell to increase exponentially.

Now, we look at the rate of change of the volume in Hell because Boyle's Law states that in order for the temperature and pressure in Hell to stay the same, the volume of Hell has to expand proportionately as souls are added. 

This gives two possibilities: 

If Hell is expanding at a slower rate than the rate at which souls enter Hell, then the temperature and pressure in Hell will increase until all Hell breaks loose. 

Of course, if Hell is expanding at a rate faster than the increase of souls in Hell, then the temperature and pressure will drop until Hell freezes over. 

So which is it? 
If we accept the postulate given to me by Ms. Teresa Banyan during my  Freshman year, that "... it will be a cold day in Hell before I sleep with you," and take into account the fact that I still have not succeeded in having sexual relations with her, then, #2 cannot be true, and thus I am sure that Hell is exothermic and will not freeze.

The student received the only "A" given.
